Three new posters and a nifty banner have been released for writer/director Andrew Niccol’s (Gattaca, In Time) upcoming sci-fi film The Host. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and takes place in a future where a parasitic alien species is nearly finished wiping out the human population by taking over the consciousness of each person. A soul named Wanderer is attempting to take control of Melanie Stryder’s (Saoirse Ronan) consciousness, but faces strong opposition by what remains of the girl. Two trailers in, I’m still not entirely sure what the film is about, but I’m interested to see Niccol’s take on a teen sci-fi romance film even if these new posters look like perfume advertisements.
Hit the jump to check out the new posters. The film also stars Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, and Boyd Holbrook. The Host opens on March 29th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Host:
THE HOST is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.
